Back to lose the fat again...

I work on a computer all day long... Commute to work by car... Not much opportunity to walk, which used to help a lot to keep my weight under control. Well, I love to eat. I like to snack all the time!!! I usually lose the fat relatively easily but struggle to keep it off. This time I will try intermittent fasting for the first time. Let's see if I will succeed this time!!!

Other Information:
I am a lover of science fiction everything. Fond of computers, programming, mathematics, physics and engineering. Chemistry was never a favorite, I don't know why. May be because it is some type of physics where the focus is on a reduced subset of phenomena? (Chemists will probably get angry at this point).

Thanks for your comments to my question. I was thinking the same thing, just needed confirmation.

Hey Buddy,

Thanks for reading my "New Bike" blog. I am currently officiating high school football games. I don't have any time to run or ride in any races.

I would like to give it a shot though.

Bruce

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. Yes, the calorie cycling thing is a big experiment, so we'll see what happens. I'm not convinced it's going to work, but I'm keeping an open mind.

Thanks for dropping by my "bike bling" blog. What type of bike do you ride now? Do you like it?

Buying a new bike is all about what you like, how you ride, and where you plan to ride. Before I bought my Camber, I tested several bikes from various manufactures. The first bike I tested was the Giant Yukon that I thought would be the perfect bike for me. The frame geometry specs were fantastic. The price was on sale for $875, which is phenomenal for a good full-suspension trail bike.

When I rode the Yukon I was totally taken by surprise. The Yukon was a stable and comfortable bike. The riding position was upright. The Yukon was a nice and tidy bike.

I tried to throw the bike around. I tried to link quick turns and bunny hop a curb. The Yukon responded smoothly, predictably and very slowly. The bike felt dead to me!

The Yukon would be a great bike for a certain type of rider. The bike just wasn't good for me. My Camber is a fantastically responsive bike. But riding my Camber is like balancing a vertical pencil on the end of your finger. You have to pay attention all the time. I came off a 3 foot drop on my Camber at Buffalo Creek. I was really moving quickly and caught big air. When I landed, I had a minuscule turn in the handle bars. The bike jetted off the trail. I jammed on the brakes. I dug a trench in the soft sand. I stopped with my front wheel stuck in a monster willow bush. I wasn't hurt and the bike was fine.

When in the zone, that Camber rewards the rider with crisp laser-like handling. I love the feel of the bike. A different rider, with even more skill than me, might find the Camber twitchy and unpredictable.

I really wanted to buy a Camber Expert. But the Camber Expert model had sold out many months ago. So I bought the Camber Comp, which is an odd bike. The Camber Comp is a performance trail bike with quite a few recreational components.

The Camber Comp is Specialized's entry-level full suspension bike - but is a mean little sucker. The Yukon is Giant's entry-level full suspension bike and is stable and predictable.

I read a bike test of the 2013 Camber 29er, which replaces my Camber Comp 26er. The bike testers noted that the 2013 Camber 29 was a stable "bulldozer" of a bike. And that beginners would love it.

There are different bikes for different riders. You just have to decide what you like in a bike.

Thanks, Bruce

Thanks for your comment on my "Building a Better Bike". I am fortunate to be able to afford a few good bikes. I know that most people have other priorities. I have more money in my bikes than I do in my car.

I am an engineer and cannot help myself. I gotta fiddle with things.

Thanks, Bruce
